Master’s students and PhDs are struggling on the job market. 40% of master’s degree holders and 34% of PhDs are underemployed.


When they fail to land a job in their career field, they blame their degree and institution.


But it’s not their education that’s failing them; it’s their lack of job search strategy. They don’t know how to conduct a successful job search and they aren’t finding the support they need.


Never in my life have I been so nervous, depressed and angry. It feels like all my schooling and internships were a waste.

I struggled so much to pay for school and have nothing to show for it.

I just finished my STEM PhD. I have data analysis/computer science skills, which I was told would be in high demand.

I've been job hunting since August and have so far only landed a part-time min wage job a high school graduate can do.

I got a 1 year MBA from a state school. The job offers I get are from pyramid schemes, direct sales scams, and other MLM bs.

Should I accept that the school took my loan money and ran?


The reputation of an institution and, in turn, its long-term financial stability are directly connected to alumni career success.


Graduate students need support leveraging their education into career paths they value.


That’s why we partner with 50 institutions (and growing), to provide scalable, research-driven career resources designed for the unique needs and demands of graduate students.


Through our two digital platforms, Beyond the Professoriate and Beyond Graduate School, we provide scalable, research-driven career training designed for the unique needs and demands of graduate students.

Our platforms help graduate students explore career options; learn job search strategies through structured curriculum; and secure employment in their field of interest.

Structured curriculum

Students are guided through research-based, structured curriculum to help them through each stage of their job search. Video lessons, workbooks, and assessments help facilitate their learning experience.

Career video library

Our one-of-a-kind video library where students can watch interviews with master's and PhD holders working in all career sectors: academic, government, higher ed, industry, and non-profits.

Live events

In addition to the guided video lessons, students have access to monthly live events to learn the latest in industry hiring trends.


By completing video lessons and our curriculum, students can earn certification for their professional development.

Beyond Graduate School

for master's

Beyond Graduate School is a one-of-a-kind, training platform that helps master’s students make the most out of their investment and build their careers.


From video lessons on career exploration, to writing application materials, to interviewing and negotiating for that next career step — our platform helps master’s students to degree completion and through each stage of their job search.

Beyond the Professoriate

for phds

Beyond the Professoriate is a digital platform where doctoral students and PhDs can explore career options and learn job search strategies to secure employment in academia and beyond.


Through two programs of study (Faculty Careers and Professional Careers), students are empowered to make informed decisions about their career path and learn successful job search strategies from other PhDs.


Prepare more students

Through our platforms, students have access to on-demand, 24/7 career support when and where they need it.

The Beyond Prof Team has successfully scaled all of the beneficial aspects of individual career advising to institution-wide initiatives, and has created platforms that are engaging and meaningful to the students that have the opportunity to use them.


-Institutional Partner

The platform has been really helpful at building on the career development programming I have received from my college and has provided me with a number of useful tools I hope to implement when I’m in the job search process after my graduate studies.
